Kitsap County Veterans Memorials and Museums

Fischler ParkKitsap County has produced a Guide to Veterans Memorials and Museums in Kitsap County in Kitsap County. It was developed by Marion T, (Mick) Hersey, MSCS(AW) USN Retired. Mick is the county’s resident Historical Memorial Preservationist. He volunteers his time and effort to maintain the county’s Veterans Memorials.

On any given weekend he can be found at one of the memorials coordinating its cleanup and preservation. He arranges for local companies to provide the necessary supplies, and his crew of volunteers is comprised of military members, service organizations, and interested members of the public. As a labor of love he personally refurbished and repainted all the plaques along the Bremerton Boardwalk.

On this Memorial Day weekend come out and visit one of his memorials.
